Thank you very much for your interest in Firefly Women! :)
Here is some information for you before you begin watching the show.
WHAT IS THE SHOW ABOUT?
This Digital piece is an artistic response to letters written from jail by two women wrongly incarcerated under a draconian law and Rokaya Sakhawat Hossain’s short story, Sultana’s Dream. This 7 part digital experience will take you through the letters and the fictional landscape of the short story as they make inroads into feminist solidarity, resilience and hope in these dark times.
“2020 was the year of being falsely framed and arrested under UAPA, it was also the year of encountering rainbows in the skies, the polluted skies of the old city, to have found one, even in Jail. Now, we wait for a firefly.”
- 23rd May 2021, Devangana Kalita in a letter written from Tihar
